Bus Rules

Parent /Guardian Information

  • Please have your child ready for the bus at least ten minutes before scheduled to be picked-up
  • Child must be waiting outside at the end of the driveway or at the identified bus stop

Waiting for the bus

  • Be at the bus stop on time. Stand well away from the curb; wait quietly for the bus
  • Wait for the bus to come to a complete stop before boarding
  • Don’t crowd your friends getting on or off the bus; board and exit one at a time
  • Never play or stand in the aisles; find a seat and sit down.

Riding on the bus

  • Listen to the bus driver and monitor; follow their directions!
  • Don’t stick anything out the windows
  • Stay in your seat
  • Talk quietly with your friends
  • Don’t throw things in the bus. 

Getting on, off, and around the bus

  • Avoid the Danger Zone, because it’s difficult for the driver to see you in this area
  • Take 10 giant steps beyond the front bumper of the bus before you turn to cross the street. This lets the driver maintain eye contact with you while you cross. 
  • Look both ways before crossing a street, and wait for driver’s signal
  • NEVER cross the street behind the bus! 
  • Keep away from the bus if you drop or forget something.
